Pierogies with kielbasa, peppers and onions is a can’t-go-wrong combo that makes for an awesomely easy meal!
Pierogies are one of those secret weapons to a quick, easy and delicious weeknight dinner.
But what goes with pierogies? Do you need sauce? How do you cook them for the best flavor and so they don’t stick to the pan or get soggy?
We’re diving in to discuss these things and finishing off with a great little sheet pan recipe that includes kielbasa, peppers and onions.
What make pierogies different than ravioli?
While both are stuffed dough, pierogies are typically stuffed with mashed potatoes mixed with something. Sometimes that something is cheese or herbs or vegetables.
Pierogis are typically browned in a pan vs. being boiled in water like ravioli and are not served with sauce but are a part of medley of other ingredients that add flavor.
This is all generally speaking and doesn’t matter too much unless you are making pierogies or ravioli from scratch, which I’ve done and recommend trying! But, since my motto here is Super Easy Recipes, we are using frozen pierogies for this recipe.
This one-pan recipe cooks in the oven.
All you need is a well greased sheet pan so clean up for this meal is simple.
Since kielbasa and pieories are already cooked, we’re just baking the peppers and onion until those are cooked, the kielbasa is warmed through and the pierogies have a touch of golden brown.
If you prefer to use the stovetop, you can. You’ll just need to stir more frequently to ensure everything cooks evenly. Use a large pot or skillet over medium heat. Cook for about 20 minutes.
Use kielbasa bites or slice rope kielbasa into coins.
I used Boski Kielbasa mini bites for this recipe because it saves a step. No slicing needed!
However, if you can’t find mini bites, you can also use rope kielbasa. Just slice into 1″ thick coins.
What type of pierogies are best with this recipe?
You can really use any kind of pierogies! I really like how the loaded baked potato pierogies taste with the peppers and onion but a cheese blend would be great or even the spinach and feta pierogies would be yummy.
You really can’t go wrong here. Choose your favorite or mix it up each time you make this dinner.
